I dug out 2 sweaters that I've had for years and never wear. The white cable is one I bought during my, now in the distant past, teacher life. I felt I needed it to wear on Monday's when we had to wear the most horrid vest for our Character Ed. program. I hated Mondays because I hated having to think about wearing that vest! That may sound silly, but you know how Monday's can be, and having to wear something you don't like on top of the Monday crazies was not fun for me. The other flowered number is a glass of wine, credit card, late night visit to the Anthropologie website. I love Anthropologie, but this sweater and I never made friends..........
I also stretched the heck out of it before I let it dry on the drying rack. The sash was from the Anthropologie sweater which I sewed along the bottom. Then used various pieces of left-over wool for patches.
